The physical transport of the manufactured mobile modular (building) units to installation sites is a crucial part of the project. As such, Logistics will be treated as a project within a project with special importance.
The BCI will evaluate favourable and limiting factors to identify potential challenges and develop contingency management measures. The process entails the collection of finished units at the manufacturing facility, transport by land to the nearest international port and shipment by sea to the port of destination. The cargo will be met by the local team, trained and well-prepared for transportation of the units directly to the site, or to temporary storage facilities as planned.
Due to the size and weight of the units, we anticipate that the most feasible and cost-effective means of transportation from the overseas manufacturing facility to the subject country is by sea. During the R&D phase, we will assess various packaging methods, routes and key agents, and develop good working relationships with the most competent service providers with appropriate experience in this type and scale of freight. These will become BCI Transport Associates who will provide shipping services, transport and related insurance advice for our projects.
Cargo in transit to the port of exit will be accompanied and managed by our operations director and his team. Security and insurance arrangements will be made to prevent and cover damage or theft in transit. The units arriving at the port of destination will be met by our operations director who will take delivery of the units having made prior arrangements for temporary storage and progressive transport to the project site.
